Metro Hospitality Apprenticeship took a field trip to @studiokcreative, where they learned about the process of designing a restaurant.
Studio K was founded 2 years ago by Karen Herold, and they are already well-known all over the country for their high-level work. (They designed The Girl & The Goat on Randolph St., for instance.) Karen led the students in an exercise where they created an interior design materials collage that mimicked the mood, textures, and aesthetics of their favorite outfits. It was so cool!
The Metro Business Apprenticeship Students are selling their products today to the younger students!! Welcome to Le Parfait Cafe!

It's wonderful to sea the Hospitality students come out of their shell and make waves with these fin-tastic aquatic cakes. We're shore you'll agree! Thanks to @k_madd20 from @amybeckcakedesign for her stellar decorating tutorial. #MEFapprenticeships #baking #hospitality #cake #cakedecorating
